Too Far: 8-Year-Old Girls Now Given
Testosterone Through ‘Government Funded Research’
A research grant from the National Institutes of Health is funding research into the impact of “early medical treatment” in “transgender” children as young as 8 years old.
Endocrinologist Dr. Michael Laidlaw talked about the devastating effects of hormone therapy on “transgender children” at a panel for the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, last Thursday.
Laidlaw explained that children as young as 13 years old are receiving “medical treatment” in the form of hormone therapy and puberty blockers, which disrupts normal development.
The puberty-blocking drugs given to “transgender youth” harms bone development, stops normal sexual development and puts the children at risk of osteoporosis.
Laidlaw also noted that transgender children report greater self-harm, greater mental health problems and greater dissatisfaction with their bodies after taking puberty-blocking drugs.
“Now, you’d think if you had these side effects of these medications, wouldn’t you want to stop?” Laidlaw asked.
Laidlaw brought up the government funded research of Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy, who has received $5.7 million to administer “early medical treatment” to “transgender” children as young as 8 years old.
Olson-Kennedy gives “cross-sex hormones” to her subjects, which means that girls as young as 8 are given testosterone.
Laidlaw also played a clip of Olson-Kennedy defending mastectomies, breast surgery, for teenage girls.
“People make life-altering decisions in adolescence all the time, and honestly, most of them are good,” Olson-Kennedy said.
“And here’s the other thing about chest surgery: If you want breasts at a later point in your life, you can go and get them,” she said.
This is absolutely sickening. Children struggle with their basic math homework, and people such as Olson-Kennedy expect them to make decisions that will change their lives in ways they cannot comprehend.
The scary part is that lunatics like Olson-Kennedy are given millions of dollars to test their “transgender” delusions on children.
“This whole thing is an experiment on children,” Laidlaw said. “We are ignoring the voices of desisters and people who have come out of this and recognize their sex. And the NIH is allowing unethical research to be conducted on adolescents, in my opinion.”
Not long ago, conservatives warned that liberals would try pushing their transgender agenda on children — and now the United States government is funding it.
